A friend alerted me to spokeo.com, which allegedly publishes very private information about U.S. citizens.
Fearful that my secret nose-picking fetish would be exposed, I tried it for myself.
Entered Julie Jacobson, clicked on Minnesota (there are 18 of us here) and found myself in Stillwater, Minn.
The horrors! In fact, they do have my photo there, courtesy of Twitter. Interestingly enough, almost all of the other Julie Jacobsons in Minnesota look just like me!!
They got a few other things right like my gender (female) and zodiac (Gemini). They got a few things close like my age. According to spokeo, I'm in my late 40's. I won't be in the lates for another couple of years.
But here are my favorites:
Home Description: PO Box, built in 1999
Lifestyle & Interests: Enjoys shopping (they must have seen this)
And for the one Julie Jacobson that doesn't have my picture in her profile, here's what she has instead. Lucky her.
